    Just wondering. It seems like Verizon is notoriously slow in pushing firmware updates, so I'm curious if anyone has received the .1 update from them, and figure this thread can be used as a place to notify those of us on Big Red when/if it comes.

    The 8X will receive the update when HTC finishes stability testing on the handset. Be happy because the 8S WILL NOT receive the update due to it only having 8GB internal storage. The developer preview runs smooth as silk on my 8X, so the official 8.1 should as well. Patience Grasshopper...

    No I'm still waiting here. I'm hearing end of August early Sept. Hopefully will coincide with the HTC w8 phone event since it is also a Verizon event. I'm sure people will ask Verizon about it then. It's all verizon done and they are slackers when it comes to updates. I remember from Android.

    Now that the M8 is official, I believe Verizon will soon update their other Windows Phones. To me, this is the same scenario as iOS 7 being held back before the release of the iPhone 5c and 5s. It was a selling point of these two phones that they had the new os pre-installed. I believe Verizon is doing the same with 8.1.

    I've chatted with HTC Support and they say 8.1 is coming out pretty soon, so *fingers crossed*

    Hey guys, I have an 8X with Verizon and I'm still on OS version: 8.0.10501.127

    Isn't this really outdated or am I just reading it wrong?
